No, these aren’t the photos that I took at the inauguration of President Obama. (I still need to upload and edit mine.) These come from The Boston Globe online, and I learned about them from @rebekahead on Twitter. (BTW, if you are on Twitter, I hope you’ll follow me @pjinomaha!)

Here are some of of the incredible photographs taken on January 20, 2009.

I was standing near the 2nd Jumbotron on the right. So close (almost)!

I think Sasha Obama is the cutest thing ever, and I love her and Malias custom J.Crew jackets.

Who care is Michelles dress too closely resembled a wedding dress? The President and First Lady look like royalty here.

I just purchased Amtrak tickets to head down to DC next week for the inauguration. For the price I paid, I could have flown round-trip from Nebraska to New Jersey!Ā  But can you really put a price on something as historic as the inauguration of Barak Obama as president?

Of course, the friend I’m going to visit and I don’t actually have tickets to the main event. I imagine we’ll stand among the huddled masses on the Mall, excited just to be kind of close to where the real action is taking place. Once we decide we’re too cold, we’ll head back to her apartment to watch the inauguration on TV, which will be recording on her DVR.

Is anybody else planning to be in DC for the inauguration?
